Since I'm bedridden at the moment, I figured it was time to update. I went to the doctor today because I woke up with a sharp pain in my lower abdomen on the right side. Getting an appointment turned out to be tricky and when I was there, I was put through a bunch of tests, but they showed up normal. No ruptured appendix, at least. It still could be inflamed...we didn't do a CT yet, but that's the next step. Blurgh! I told Matt about all of the appendicitis that hit our job a few years ago. I vaguely remember the order in which my co-workers had it, but it was all within the span of one summer. Freaky shit. So I'm in bed, nauseated, and trying to ignore the pain. Matt has been a trooper, keeping me company and not complaining about my inability to really do nothing except watch the OC and read. And I guess, now blog.
Other than the medical stuff I just mentioned, I've been pretty well. I've been working on a story, working my job, photographing, laughing, and having some really good times. Last week Friday, Matt and I went downtown to try to see one of the Kanye West projections, but due to some lack of permits (come on, seriously?!) only one happened in the Third Ward. It was too early for us to have gone to it (Matt had to work), but we ended up walking downtown and along the Riverwalk. What could've been a major disappointment turned out to be a nice low-key evening. The next day, I closed, picked up Laura (in town for Father's Day), and went to Walter's with my co-workers. It was a very good time and Laura said she hadn't laughed like that in a while. I'm glad we could provide her with top-notch entertainment. I saw This Is The End, which was hilarious. By the end of the movie, the audience was applauding. I'd love to see it again. Yesterday, I picked up the new Kanye West cd before I went to work for Matt. All I have to say about it is HOLY EFF. Just whoa. It's just so good! So many of the beats were stuck in my head at work yesterday. And there's no way that you can say some of the lyrics out loud...unless you're alone, hah. It's been really warm here lately. Slightly less warm today, but still shorts weather. Let's make it last, Wisconsin!
